City of Chicago, Law Departiment, 7 
April 24, 1911. j 

In re Tenure of office of members of 
Board of Local Improvements. 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — In compliance with the re- 
quest of the Corporation Counsel I here- 
with submit an opinion on the question 
of the tenure of office of the members 
of the Board of Local Improvements and 
the poAver of the Mayor to remove 
same. 

A determination of this question is 
dependent upon the question whether 
the Local Improvement Act should be 
interpreted independently of the general 
provisions of the Cities and Villages 
Act relating to municipal officers or 
whether the two Acts should be con- 
strued together in that regard as Acts 
in materia. According to my view 

the Local Improvement Act is a full and 
complete code relating to local improve- 
ments intended to cover the entire sub- 
ject and independent of any other Act 
which may happen to contain general 
provisions referring to some matter in 
the former. It is "a general revision of 
all the laws theretofore existing in re- 
lation to local improvements." Village 
of Melrose v. Dunnebecke, 210 111. 422 
(424). The statute "has provided what 
is intended to be a complete code gov- 
erning a proceeding for making a local 
improvement bv special assessment." 
Gaoe V. City of Chicago. 216 111. 107 
(111.). The Act was meant to be sep- 
arate and distinct from other Acts and 
to cover fully and completely the mat- 
ters contained in it. and the necessity 
for the aid of any general statutory pro- 
visions to supplement or explain it was 
not contemplated. Nor is there any, 
need in the present case to resort to the 
Cities and Villages Act to supply any 
omissions or defects in the Local Im- 
provement Act in respect to the terms of 
office of the members of the Board of 
Local Improvements. 

The Board of Local Improvements is 
created by the Local Improvement Act 
and all the duties and powers of the 
Board are derived from that Act. The 
manner of appointment of the members

of tile Board is presoribed by tlie Act 
and tlie only powers conferred by tlie 
Act upon tlie City Council in this re- 
gard are those of confirming the ap- 
pointment and fixing the salaries of the 
Board. Section 6 of the Act which con- 
tains these provisions is in part as fol- 
lows: 

"In cities within the terms of this 
act. having a population of one hun- 
dred thousand (100,000) or more, 
by the last preceding census of the 
United States, or of this State, there 
is hereby created a board of local im- 
provements, consisting of five mem- 
bers: such five members shall be nom- 
inated by the mayor and shall be con- 
firmed by the council or board of trus- 
tees of such city; and no one of which 
shall be the head of any department 
of the government of such city, or 
hold any other office or position 
therein. Said board shall elect 
from its members a president, a vice- 
president and an assistant secretary. 
The superintendent of special assess- 
ments shall be ex-officio secretary of 
the hoard. In the absence or the in- 
ability of the president or the vice- 
president to act, the vice-president for 
the president, and the assistant secre- 
tary for the vice-president, are hereby 
given full power to sign and execute 
■contracts, vouchers, bonds, pay-rolls 
and all other papers, documents, and 
instruments necessary to carry this act 
and all proceedings hereunder into full 
power and effect. Said board shall 
hold daily sessions for the transaction 
of all business in rooms accessible to 
the public^ to be provided by the city 
council. 

"The city council or board of trus- 
tees of such city shall provide for sala- 
ries for said board of local improve- 
ments. ■"■ * " 

It will be observed that the tenure of 
office of the members of the board is not 
fixed and that the manner of their re- 
moval is not provided for. But the rule 
is universal that where an office is cre- 
ated by appointment and a definite term 
is not prescribed, the office is held at the 
pleasure of the appointing power and the 
incumbent may be removed at any time. 
Throop on Public .Officers, See. 304; 29 
Cyc. 1.371. The further rule is equally 
well settled that where an officer is re- 
movable at pleasure, no cause for re- 
moval need be assigned. Throop on 
Public Officers, Sec. 304. And a re- 
moval may be effected by the appoint- 



ment of another person. Holbrook v. 
Township Trustees, 22 111. 5.39. So that 
it is apparent that there are no omis- 
sions or defects in the Local Improve- 
ment Act in this particular which would 
require a recourse to the general pro- 
visions of the Cities and Villages Act 
in order to render the former Act intel- 
ligible or effective. The general rules of 
statutory construction supply the omis- 
sions and Ave are justified in resorting 
to these rules to interpret the Act as 
an independent piece of legislation rather 
than construing it in connection with 
the general provisions of .the Cities and 
Villages Act which were never intended 
to apply to it. In other words in the 
construction adopted we are simply 
treating the Local Improvement Act as 
a full and complete code on the sub- 
jects contained therein which I think is 
clearly in accordance with its spirit and 
intent. 

If the question involved a construc- 
tion of the Local Improvement Act 
alone no difficulty whatever would be 
presented. The tenure of office of the 
members of the board would be at the 
pleasure of the Mayor and he could re- 
move them at anv time without assign- 
ing any reasons therefor. 

But it is necessary to further deter- 
mine whether the general provisions of 
the Cities and Villages Act prescribing 
the term of office and the manner of 
removal of officers of the city change in 
any way the conclusion above stated. 
These provisions are as follows: 

"All officers of any city, except 
where herein otherAvise provided, shall 
be appointed by the mayor (and va- 
cancies in all offices except the mayor 
and aldermen shall be filled by like 
appointment) by and with the advice 
and consent of the city council. The 
city council may by ordinance not in- 
consistent with the provisions of this 
act prescribe the duties and define the 
power of such officers, together 
with the term of any such of- 
fice; Provided the term shall not 
exceed two vears.'' Section 6 of 
Article VI. 

"The ]Mayor shall have power to 
remove any officer appointed by him 
on any formal charge, whenever he 
shall be of the opinion that the inter- 
ests of the city demand such removal, 
but he shall report the reasons for 
such removal to the council at a meet- 
ing to be held not less than five davs 



20 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

before nor more than ten days after 
such removal; and if the Mayor shall 
fail or refuse to file with the City 
Clerk a statement for the reasons of 
such removal, or if the City Council, 
by a two-thirds vote of its members 
authorized by law to be elected, by 
yeas and nays, to be entered upon its 
record, disapprove of such removal, 
such officer shall thereupon become 
restored to the office from which he 
was so removed; but he shall give 
new bonds and take a new oath of 
office. No officer shall be removed a 
second time for the same offense." 
Section 7 of Article II. 
In my opinion the above provisions 
(wMcb' apply to municipal officers 
generally) in no way affect or control" 
the appointment or removal of the mem- 
bers of the Board of Local Improve- 
ments. These officials being created by 
a special Act for a particular purpose 
and being subject to the control of the 
municipality only insofar as the Act 
specifically provides, occupy a different 
status from other municipal officers gen- 
erally. It would not be proper statu- 
tory 'con stmction, therefore, to construe 
the general provisions of the Cities and 
Villages Act in connection with the Lo- 
cal Improvement Act, which is a special 
act on a particular subject. Such a 
construction would be opposed to the 
manifest intent of the latter Act, and 
in conflict with its scope and_ purpose. 
Furthermore, there is no necessity of in- 
terpreting these Acts as statutes in 
pari moAeria, since there is no conflict 
between them on the point in question 
that requires harmonizing and no words 
or phrases in that regard in the Local 
Improvement Act which are obscure or 
uncertain. C. & N. W. Ry. Co. v. City 
of Chicago, 148 111. 141 (159). But 
even if the necessity did exist for con- 
struing the two Acts together, then ac- 
cording to the rules of statutory con- 
struction, the Local Improvement Act, 
which is a special Act containing pro- 
visions in respect to the creation, ap- 
pointment, salaries and duties of the 
Board of Local Improvements, should 
be excepted from the operation and ef- 
fect of the general provisions of the 
Cities and Villages Act relating to offi- 
cers of the city generally. "A particu- 
lar and specific statutory provision will 
prevail over a general one on the same 
subject in another statute, and will be 
treated as an exception thereto." 
Dahnke v. The People, 108 111. 102. "The 
special mention of one thing indicates 



that it was not intended to be covered 
by a general provision which would 
otherwise include it." C. & N. W. Ry. 
Co. V. City of Chicago, 148 111. 141 
(159).; Endlich on Interpretation of 
Statutes, Sec. 399. 

On the same principle it would follow 
that the express provisions in the Local 
Improvement Act on those subjects, 
namely, the creation, appointment, du- 
ties and salaries of the Board, would 
indicate a clear intent to exclude from 
the City Council any power to legislate 
on anv matters relating thereto, except 
as may be clearly granted by the Act. 
This view is strengthened when we fur- 
ther consider the fact that the Local 
Improvement Act has expressly dele- 
gated to the City Council the power to 
consent to the appointment of the 
members of the Board and to fix their 
salaries and granted no further powers 
in this regard. Manifestly if the legisla- 
ture had intended that the council should 
have had any other authority in rela- 
tion to the members of the Board such, 
for instance, as fixing their term of of- 
fice, it would undoubtedly have said so. 
'It is hardly necessary to cite authority 
on the proposition that on matters con- 
tained in the Local Improvement Act 
the City Council can exercise only such 
power as the Act may expressly confer. 
However the case of Walker v. City 
of Chicago, 202 111. 531 (534) will illus- 
trate the rule. In that case it was held 
that the Council has no authority to 
direct the Board of Local Improvements 
to originate an improvement for the 
reason that "'no power is conferred upon 
the City Council in that regard." 

In this view of the question the City 
Council does not possess the poAver to 
fix the terms of office of the members of 
the Board of Local Improvements and, 
therefore, the ordinance of June 8. 1908, 
prescribing such terms of office is. m 
my opinion, to that extent void for want 
of' authority. The ordinance referred 
to is as follows: 

"1576. Members — Salaries.) The 
five members of the board of local 
improvements who may be appointed 
by the mayor and confirmed by the 
city council of the City of Chicago 
titled, "An Act concerning lo- 
cal improvements," approved June 
under the terms of an act of the gen- 
eral assembly of the State of Illinois,

titled. "An Act concerning lo- 
cal improvements," approved June

.14, 1897, ill force July 1, 1897, 
as amended by the act approved 
and in force 'May 9, 1901, shall 
receive as salary from the city 
of Chicago for their services as mem- 
bers of such board of local improve- 
ments the sum of four thousand dol- 
lars per annum; provided, however, 
that the president of said board of 
local improvements shall receive as 
salary the sum of five thousand dol- 
lars per annum, such salaries to be 
paid out of the appropriation from 
the board of local improvements. 

"1577. Terms of Office.) The 
persons actino- as such members of 
the board of local improvements at 
the date of the passage of this ordi- 
nance shall hold their offices until the 
first Monday in July, 1908, and until 
their successors shall have been ap- 
pointed and shall have qualified. The 
persons thereafter appointed by the 
mayor and confirmed by the city coun- 
cil in accordance with the provisions 
of said act shall be appointed bien- 
nially and shall hold their offices for 
two years and until their successors 
shall have been appointed and shall 
have been qualified. 

'■'1578. Bonds.) Before entering 
upon the performance of the duties of 
his office each member of the board of 
local im>provements so appointed and 
eonfirm'ed shall execute to the city of 
Chicago a good and sufficient bond with 
sureties to be approved bv the city 
council in the penal sum of twenty- 
five thousand dollars, conditioned upon 
the faithful perform.ance and discharge 
of the duties of such office as pre- 
scribed and required by law and by 
the orders and ordinances of the city 
of Chicago." 

For the reasons stated I am of the 
opinion that the members of the Board 
of Local Improvemests hold their of- 
fices at the pleasure of the Mayor and 
are removable by him at any time with- 
out a statement of the causes for such 
removal.

To the Eonorahle the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I beg leave to transmit 
herewith a communication from the 
Corporation Counsel as well as six reso- 
lutions pertaining to mandamus proceed- 
ings relative to the reinstatement on 
the police force of discharged police- 
men. 

Immediately following the entry of 
the order reinstating these policemen, 
each executed an instrument purporting 



to release the City of Cliicago from all 
liability for back salary, damages for 
discharge, etc., and reciting that in con- 
sideration of such release the city waived 
all right to prosecute an appeal from 
the order for mandamus. 

In the opinion of the present Corpora- 
tion Counsel, the then Corporation 
Counsel of the city had no authority to 
accept or reject on behalf of the city 
the proposition made by the discharged 
policemen. 

I would suggest that each of said 
resolutions be passed without the usual 
reference to a committee. 

Respectfully submitted. 

(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following opinion from the Cor- 
poration Counsel was submitted with 
the foregoing communication: 

Law Department, ) 
April 26, 1911. | 

Eon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Dear Sir — I herewith hand you six 
resolutions which pertain to six man- 
damus proceedings relative to the re- 
instatement on the police force of the 
six persons referred to in the resolutions 
aforesaid. 

As is indicated by the resolutions, 
each of the police officers involved, im- 
mediately following the entry of the 
order of court reinstating him, executed 
an instrument purporting to release the 
City of Chicago from all liability for 
back salary, damages for discharge, etc., 
and recited in conclusion that the city 
by the acceptance of the alleged release 
thereby waived all right to prosecute an 
appeal from, or writ of error based upon, 
the order for mandamus. 

In my opinion, the Corporation Coun- 
sel of the City of Chicago has not and 
never had authority to either accept or 
reject on behalf of the city the propo- 
sition therein contained to waive error 
and appeal in consideration of such al- 
leged release. But on the contrary I 
am of the opinion that the only author- 
ity empowered to pasis on that question 
on behalf of the City of Chicago is the 
City Council. In order, therefore, that 
the question of acceptance or rejection 
of the releases may be determined by 
the only branch of the municipal gov- 
ernment authorized to pass on the sub- 
ject, I have caused the resolutions ac- 
companying this communication to be

prepared and would respectfully recom- 
mend that they he presented to the City 
Council at its nest meeting. 

I deem it to the best interests of the 
city that speedy action he taken con- 
cerning these resolutions. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. H. Sexton, 

Corporation Coutvsel.

'Mayor's Office, | 
Chicago, April 29, 1911. j 

To the Honorable the City Council: 

Gentlemen — 1 beg leave to submit 
herewith an ordinance drafted by the 
Corporation Counsel at my request, 
abolishing the office of Inspector of 
Fish for the City of Chicago. 

The occupants of the position of In- 
spector of Fish have all performed the 
same duties as those performed by the 
ordinary Inspectors of the Health De- 
partment, but have been paid a much 
Iiigher salary than these Inspectors. In 
the interest of economical government 
I believe the office should 'be abolished 
and the duties heretofore performed by 
its former occupants should be delegated 
to one of the staff of the Health Depart- 
ment. 

1 would, therefore recommend the 
passage of the attached ordinance with- 
out the ordinary reference to a com- 
mittee. 

Respectfully submitted. 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison. 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for the 
consideration of tlie ordinance submitted 
witli the fore<>'oing communication.

The following communication from • 
the Corporation Counsel: 

'Law Department, | 
Chicago, April 27, 1911. ] 

Hon. Francis D. Connery, City Clerk: 

Dear Sir — ^An examination of the 
council proceedings of April 17, 1911, 
discloses that on motion of Alderman 
Richert the official bonds of a number 
of Mayor Harrison's appointees were un- 
animously approved. I am informed 
that most or all of these bonds recite 
that the appointees were appointed to 
office_for terms of four years instead of 
terms of two years which are the terms 
prescribed by law for most of the offices 
in question. As a matter of substance 
the mistaken recitals in the bonds are 
immaterial. Recital in a bond cannot 
control appointment to office nor the 
law^s or ordinances fixing the tenure of 
the office. 

People ex rel v. Beech, 77 III. 52, 55. 

By the overwnelming weight of au- 
thority in this state provisions in a law 
or ordinance relating to official bonds 



30 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



Mav 1, 1911. 



will be construed as directory and not 
mandatory, so that the officials in ques- 
tion are legally appointed despite the 
recitals in the bonds. 

Also, in my opinion the sureties on the 
bonds would be bound despite the mis- 
taken recitals. 

I am further informed, however, that 
the surety companies have requested 
that new bonds be substituted contain- 
ing the proper recitals and that the old 
bonds be cancelled. I would, therefore, 
suggest that you take up with Alder- 
man Richert the question of moving for 
a reconsideration of the vote by which 
the previous bonds Avere approved, and 
that Alderman Richert move to substi- 
tute new bonds with the proper recitals 
for the bonds approved April 17, and 
further move that said bonds last men- 
tioned be cancelLed and the sureties re- 
leased. Such action, I believe, will suf- 
ficiently clear up the formal defects in 
the bonds approved. 

Very truly yours, 

('Signed) Maclay Hoyne, 

First Asst. Corporation Counsel. 

Aid. Richert moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the official bonds of John 
E. Traeger, as City Comptroller, Law- 
rence E. McOann, as Commissioner of 
Public Works, and Richard J. Reynolds, 
as Business Agent, were approved by 
the Council ait its last preceding regular 
meeting. 

The motion to reconsider prevailed. 

Aid. Richert moved that the City 
Clerk be authorized to cancel and return 
the said bonds. 

The motion prevailed. 

The Clerk thereupon presented new 
bonds as follows : 

Bond of John E. Traeger, as City 
Comptroller, in the penal sum of one 
hundred thousand ($100,000.) dollars, 
with the National Suretj^ Company as 
surety ; 

Bond of Lawrence E. McGann, as Com- 
missioner of Public Works, in the penal 
sum of fiftv thousand ($50,000.) dollars, 
with the National Surety Companj^ as 
surety; and the 

Bond of Richard J. Reynolds, as Busi- 
ness Agent, in the penal sum of fifty 
tliousand ($50,000.) dollars, with the 
National Surety Company as surety. 

Aid. Richert moved to approve the 
said bonds. 



The motion prevailed by yeas and nays 
as follows :

Chicago, May 1, 1911. 
To the Eonorahle Mayo? and City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen — ^^We herewith respect- 
'fully submit for your consideration an 
ordinance amending certain ordinances 
concerning the Chicago and Oak Park 
Elevated Railroad Company, ana re- 
storing the right to build the Humboldt 
Park line, and extending our rights 
under our present ordinances so that 
they will expire at the same time the 
ordinance expires for that part of the 
railroad on Lake street from Market to 
Wabash avenue, and also providing that 
none of the rights granted by the ordi- 
nance shall become effective or valid 
until the company shall accept an ordi- 
nance providing for the elevation of its 
tracks from Fifty-second avenue to Aus- 
tin avenue, and the completion of the 
work of elevation. 

Til is subject matter has been before 
the council, and it is the desire of the 
company to elevate its tracks through 
the Austin territory as soon as it can 
possibly raise the money for such pur- 
pose. We believe that if this ordinance 
shall be passed, as herewith submitted, 
that we can raise the necessary funds 
to elevate the tracks of the company 
from Fifty- second avenue to Austin 
avenue. 

We respectfully ask that the ordinance 
herewitli submitted may be referred to 
the Committee on Local Transportation 
for its consideration.

COMMISSIONER OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

The Clerk presented the following com- 
munication submitted by the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works, Avhich was, on 
motion of Aid. Snow, referred to the 
Committee on Finance : 

Department of Public Works, | 
Chicago, April 29, 1911. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council, City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen^ — On January 12th, the 
Department made a contract with the 
United States Cast Iron Pipe & Foun- 
dry Co., to make and deliver a certain 
amount of large feeder mains. Under 
Section 20 of the specifications, it is pro- 
vided that the Commissioner may in- 
crease or decrease the tonnage desired 
by five per cent. 

The Engineering Bureau, because of 
certain changes made, found it necessary 
to increase the order. Accordingly, on 
April 24th an order — Bureau No. 3374, 
Dept. No. 5004 — ^^vas issued for the de- 
livery of 234 pieces of 12" pipe on Vin- 
cennes road, between 91st and 95th 
streets, and 31 pieces of 12" pipe on 81st 
street, from State street westward. The 
contract provides that all of the pipe 
must be delivered before May first. The 
Foundry Company, in a letter to Mr. 
Lucas, Superintendent of the Water 
Pipe Extension, on April 26th, asserted 
that this pipe could not be furnished 
within the specified time, and asked for 
an extension of the contract for thirty 
days. Superintendent Lucas asserts 
there is no objection to a reasonable ex- 
tension of the' contract for this particu- 
lar order, and adds that the City will not 
need the pipe within that period. Mr. 
John Ericson, City Engineer, also asserts 
that there would be no injury to the City 
whatever in granting the extension re- 
quested, and therefore he recommends it. 

I concur in these two recommenda- 
tions, and would ask that the necessary 
action be taken by the Council by which 
this contract wi'll be extended for a 
period not to exceed thirty days from

Department of Public Works, 1 
Chicago, May 1, 1911. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council^ 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— ^Last Friday, April 28th, 
the wall of the jacket on the back head 
of the right hand low pressure steam 
cylinder on Engine No. 2 of the 68th St. 
Pumping Station, blew out. This put 
this particular pumping engine out of 
commission; and as it supplies water to 
West Pullman, Dolton and Riverdale, it 
was considered highly important by 
both operating and supervising engineers 
that repairs' be made at once. 

At best, these districts receive an in- 
sufficient pressure, and with this engine 
broken down, the supply of water was 
decreased by thirteen million gallons a 
day. Accordingly, the engineers sent the 
head to the shop of the Carl Anderson 
Machinery Company, which is repairing 
a large pump of the 14th Street Station. 
An examination of it made Saturday af- 
ternoon and evening, convinced the en- 
gineers that it would be cheaper and 
safer to obtain new rods, which they or- 
dered. 

That the residents of the extreme 
southwest section would not suffer 
longer than necessary, the Anderson firm 
was ordered to work overtime. 

The total estimated cost is as follows : 
Repairing cylinder and replacing 

same . . ..' $300.00 

Two mild open hearth forged steel 

rods 470.00 

Fitting rings and facing piston 

head and follower 70.00 



Total estimated cost $800.00 

I respectfully request that authority 
be wranted to the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works to incur this liability and pay 
tliis expense without advertising, for the 
reason stated above. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) ' L. E. McGann, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

proposed ordinance which I would ask 
your Honorable Body to pass to-night 
under a suspension of the rules. I also 
transmit herewith a communication from

of said request. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) L. E. McGann, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

The following opinion from the Corpo- 
ration Counsel was submitted with the 
said communication: 

Law Department, ) 
Chicago, April 28, 1911. j 

In re issuing of voucher for $17,500 to 
Geo. W. Jackson, Inc. 

Hon. L. E. MoGann, Commissioner of 
Public Works: 

Dear Sir — ^^Ve acknowledge your com- 
munication oif April 26th, asking to be 
advised whether you are required to is- 
sue a voucher in favor of George W. 
Jackson, Inc., payable out of the accru- 
ing reserve under contract for construc- 
tion of Section three, Southwest Land 
and Lake Tunnel, as directed by a Coun- 
cil order, March 27th, 1911. 

Upon investigation we find that on 
February 18. 1907, C. P. 3321, the City 
Council passed an ordinance directing the 
Commissioner of Public Works to enter 
into this contract, without advertising, 
in accordance with specifications on file 
in his office. These specifications, at Sec- 
tion 221, provided that 15 per cent of 
the value of work done by the contractor 
should be reserved until the completion 
and final acceptance of the work. By 
this reference to the same Section 221, 
and all other provisions of the specifica- 
tions became incorporated in the fore- 
going ordinance and their effect cannot 
therefore be in any way altered by the 
Council order of March 27, 1911, direct- 
ing you to issue the voucher. It is well 
settled that the terms of an ordinance 
cannot be changed by a mere order or 
resolution. 

Inasmuch, however, as the purpose of 
releasing this portion of the George W. 
Jackson, Inc., reserve is to settle ten 
personal injury suits growing out of the 
crib disaster of January 20, 1909, to 
which suits the City is a party defend- 
ant, we believe that the payment re- 
ferred to is for the best interests of the 
City. In order, therefore, to justify you 
in issuing the desired voucher, we have 
redrafted the Council order of March 



27, 1911 in the form of an ordinance, 
which is enclosed herewith, with the 
recommendation that you ask for its 
passage in place of the Council order 
referred to. When this ordinance is 
passed you will, in our opinion, be justi- 
fied in issuing the voucher for $17,500.00 
as called for therein. 

We would also remind you that the 
written consents to the dismissal of the 
ten damage suits, as well as the written 
consent of the Jackson Company' bonds- 
men, now in your possession, all refer 
expressly to the Council order of March 
27th, which will necessitate the execu- 
tion of new consents in every instance. 
Mr. Bailey of the law firm of Darrow, 
Masters & Bailey, who represents the 
plaintiffs in the above cases, informs us 
that he will obtain such new consents 
as soon as the ordinance is passed. 

Files submitted by you, together with 
form of ordinance recommended, are en- 
closed herewith. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) William K. Otis, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel. 

Approved :

consideration by your Honorable Body 
thirteen ordinances authorizing the main- 
tenance of canopies over the sidewalks

REPORTS OF

sioner of Public Works to cause the re- 
moval of such canopies as were being 
maintained without ordinances requiring 
the payment of compensation. These 
canopies have been constructed in the 
past without any authority that we are 
able to discover, and the owners have 
signified their willingness to accept an 
ordinance passed by the Council provid- 
ing for the payment of compensation 
and the filing of bond to protect the City 
against any damages. The passage of 
the enclosed ordinances will increase the 
revenue of the City about $980.50 per 
annum. The ordinances are in correct 
form, with the proper compensation in- 
serted therein. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) L. E. McGann", 

Commissioner of Pnhlic Worfcs.

nances submitted with the foregoing 
communication be referred to the re- 
spective Committees on Streets and Al- 
leys of the divisions of the city where 
the proposed canopies are intended to 
be located under the said ordinances. 

The motion prevailed.

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

A communication as follows: 

Mayor's Office, \ 
Chicago, May 3, 1911. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I beg leave to transmit 
herewith an ordinance establishing a 
Department of Track Elevation, and 
with it a communication from the Cor- 
poration Counsiel calling attention to 
the present lack of an ordinance 
either creating such a department or 
creating the office of head of such a de- 
partment. 

Since 1897 the City has had regularly 
in its service an official holding the title 
of Superintendent of Track Elevation, 
and on the 14th day of March, 1898, an 
appropriation of $3,000 was made for 
the place. Since that time like annual 
appropriations have been made, and un- 
til advised to the contrary by the Cor- 
poration Counsel, I was under the im- 
pression that this office had been cre- 
ated by a city ordinance. 

Owing to the importance of the work 
of track elevation, it seems advisable to 
me that the attached ordinance creating 
such department and authorizing the 
appointment of a Commissioner of 
Track Elevation should be passed by 
your Honorable Body without the cus- 
tomary reference to a committee. 
Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given for the 
consideration of the ordinance submit- 
ted with the foregoing communication. 

Aid. Powers moved to pass the ordi- 
nance. 

The motion prevailed, and the said or- 
dinance was passed by yeas and nays 
as follows : 

Yeas— Coughl in, Kenna, Shufelt, Hard- 
ing, Pringle, Tearney, Pichert, Martin,

Danisch, Cullerton, Cermak, Schultz, 
Buckley, Ahern, Lucas, Lawley, Beilfuss, 
Jarecki, Kunz, Walkowiak, Sitts, Healy,

Chicago, May. 8, 1911. 

Hon. Carter B. Harrison, Mayor of

My Dear Sir — The Administrative 
Committee of the Child Welfare Exhibit 
hereby extend to the Mayor and the 
City Council of Chicago an invitation 
to attend as a municipal body the Child 
Welfare Exhibit, to be held in The 
Coliseum from May eleventh to the 
twenty-fifth. 

Much of the exhibit concerns itself 
with municipal administration, such as 
the splendid work of The Chicago Public 
Schools, of The Chicago Health Depart- 
ment; of The Public Libraries and Mu- 
seums, and of recreation centers. 

As half of the material composing 
the exhibit was collected in New York, 
an excellent opportunity is afforded to 
compare Chicago activities with those of 
other cities. 



in addition to the municipal exhibits, 
many of the philanthropic societies 
show enterprises which, in their opinion, 
ought as quickly as possible be taken 
over by the municipality. 

The Administrative Committee of the 
Child Welfare Exhibit are confident 
that much could be accomplished for 
the children of Chicago if the attention 
of the City Council could be directed to 
this exhibition, and request that your 
honorable body appoint an evening 
when you will attend. Special guides 
will be provided at the time which you 
designate, and a room will be set aside 
for your deliberation and discussion. 

With confidence that the results of 
your visit will in time be registered in 
the improved child life of Chicago, we 
beg to remain, 

Faithfully yours, 
(Signed) Jane Addams, 

Chairman. 

Sherman C. Kingsley, * 
Vice Chairman.

For the Executive Committee.

Chicago, May 4, 1911. j 

To the HonoraUe, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— On October 10th, 1910, 
(Page 1491 of the Proceedings of that 



date), your Honorable Body passed the 

following order: 

''Ordered, That the Commissioner of 
Public Works be and he is hereby di- 
rected to have a water supply pipe 
laid in Stewart avenue, from West 
79th street south to West 85th street, 
provided the same will pay a per- 
manent annual revenue of ten cents 
per lineal foot." 

To comply with this order would re- 
quire the laying of 3,958 feet of pipe 
at a cost of approximately $5,000.00. 

A careful survey shows that the re- 
quired revenue could only be secured by 
the transfer of consumers already sup- 
plied from other mains, and that at the 
present time the additional water rev- 
enue which would accrue to the city 
through laying this main would be but 
$9.00, or less than one cent per foot. 

Under these conditions the l5epart- 
ment cannot consistently comply with 
this order, and your Honorable Body is 
so advised. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) L. E. McGann, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

Chicago, May 5, 1911. ) 

To the HonoraUe the Mayor and the City 
Council : 

Gentlemen— In compliance with your 
order of April 5, 1911, I herewith trans- 
mit a report of the City Engineer, re- 
lating to the construction and comple- 
tion of the Roseland Water Supply Sys- 
tem. The system was recommended by 
the Citv Engineer in 1901, but owing to 
lack of funds was not started until 
1907. On account of a destructive fire 
at the Intermediate Crib, work was de- 
layed on the tunnel about six months. 
This was in the winter of 1909-10, and 
a strike delayed the work about five 
months. A further delay of three 
months also was caused by the Allis- 
Chalmers Company in not submitting 
proper plans, especially for the electric 
crane. From such information as I can 
acquire in the department I regret to 
report that much additional delay was 
caused bv a lack of system and co-

work is now proceeding satisfactorily 
and will be completed about Septem-

unforeseen contingencies arise.

Dear Sir — Referring to Council Order 



of April 5th, page 4390 of the Council 
Proceedings, relative to the construc- 
tion and time of completion of the 
Roseland water supply system, I beg to 
report as follows: 

This so-called Roseland system com- 
prises constructions of various kinds 
and is divided into about twenty or 
more contracts. 

The status of the various contracts 
and the date of probable completion of 
each are given in the following state- 
ment :

.' In addition to the above there are a 
few small items that do not affect the 
operation of the station, such as laying 
iloors in basement of engine room and 
boiler room, placing light fixtures, etc., 
that cannot well be arranged for until 
the machinery is installed. 
. The winter of 1909-1910 was unusu- 
ally severe, and it was impossible to 
carry on the construction work on the 
,pumping ^station building for several 
.months. Strikes tied up the work for 
.an additional period of two months. 
- When I resumed my duties as City 
'Engineer in August, 1910, after a leave 
'of absence of six months, a reorganiza- 
tion of the Engineering Bureau was or- 
dered and carried out contrary to my 



judgment and over my protest. This 
reorganization, the details of which are 
explained in the attached copies of cor- 
respondence between the Commissioner 
of Public Works and the City Engineer, 
has been a cause of considerable delay 
in completing the Roseland system. 

Lack of system and concentration of 
authority have also been the cause of 
much delay. 

vPlans for this work, after having been 
prepared under the supervision of the 
City Engineer, checked, approved and 
submitted by him to the Commissioner 
for advertisement, were returned with 
instructions that the approval of some 
certain subordinate of the City Engi- 
neer was required before any action

would! be taken. Tliisi caused much de- 
lay. 

The attached correspondence will ex- 
plain a case of considerable delay for 
reasons above stated and without any 
gain in the way of improvement in 
plans or otherwise. 

If there are no unforeseen delays, this 
system should be ready to be put in 
operation the first part of Septemiber. 
Respectfully submitted,

CORPORATION COUNSEL. 

The Clerk presented the following 
communication submitted by the Cor- 
poration Counsel, which was ordered 
printed in the Journal and placed on 
file: 

Law Department, \ 
. Chicago, May 8, 1911. j 

To the Honorable the City Council of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — ^At your meeting of May 
1st, 1911, the following order was 
passed : 

"Ordered, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he is hereby directed 
to investigate and report to this 
Council at as early a date as possible 
by what authority the Committee 
headed by Harlow N. Higinbotham 
controls the fund raised by public 
subscription for the benefit of the 
families of the deceased firemen, and 
to what extent their authority in the 
control of said fund extends." See 
page 58, Council Proceedings. 
December 22, 1910, certain citizens of 
this city being shocked by the loss of 
irfe at the Union Stocks "Yards fire of 
that day and being inspired by sym- 
pathy for the families and dependents 
of tile firemen who lost their lives, or 
were injured in that fire, met to discuss 
ways and means for relieving the dis- 
tress occasioned by the fire, and for the 
raising of a fund to be used for the 
assistance of those suffering thereby. 

Said meeting was a purely voluntary 
one and of no offiicial character, al- 
though the Comptroller and Corporation 
Counsel of the city were present. 

A Committee was appointed "to 
solicit contributions, and also to have 
power with reference to its final distri- 



bution." The Chairman appointed as 
this Committee Mayor Fred A. Busse, 
A. Stamford White, Walter H. Wilson, 
Fred W. Upham, John J. Mitchell, J. 
Harry Selz, 'H. N. Higinbotham, and on 
motion of Mr. Mitchell, B. E. Sunny 
was added. 

December 23, 1910, this Committee 
( except the Mayor ) met at the office of 
the City Comptroller in the City Hall, 
elected Harlow N. Higinbotham Chair- 
man, and J. Harry Selz, Secretary, and 
instructed the Chairman to prepare 
"An appeal to the public asKing for 
funds with which to care for the fam- 
ilies of the brave firemen who had 
lost their lives, as well as to care for 
the iniured firemen and their families 
to some extent, and such other de- 
pendents as might be shown to have 
been in some manner relying for sup- 
port on the men who lost their lives." 
Pursuant therewith the Chairman 
caused to be published in the public 
press of Chicago the following appeal: 
"To provide properly for the care of 
the families of the heroic firemen who 
sacrificed their lives in the protection 
of property, it will be necessary to 
raise a fund of $250,000. 

"The Citizens' Committee will 
maintain offices in the Illinois Trust 
and Savings Bank constantly for the 
next ten days, and contributions may 
be made to the Treasurer, John J. 
Mitchell, in person or by mail, or to 
any member of the Committee. 

"Sub-committees will be appointed 
to every trade and industry in Chi- 
cago, and contributions may also be 
made to these sub-committees. 

"The Committee does not feel that 
it needs do more than call attention 
of the public to the method by which 
they can best meet the demand for 
the immediate relief and permanent 
care of those who have, by the fire, 
become the city's wards." 
The newspapers of Chicago gave wide 
publicity to this appeal for contribu- 
tions, and several newspapers collected 
funds. Contributions were made rang- 
ing in amount from twenty-five cents to 
twenty-five thousand dollars, and the 
individual contributors exceeded 2,000 
in number; in addition to the indi- 
viduals large contributions were mad« 
from benefit performances, theatrical 
and otherwise, held in various theatres 
and concert halls in the city, but it is

impossible to state the number of per- 
sons who contributed to the fund by 
attendance on said benefit perform- 
ances. 

The Committee received as the pro- 
ceeds of the performances held at the 
Auditorium Theatre the sum of $14,- 
120.77. 

The total amount received by the Com- 
mittee was $202,669.96, and in addition 
it received from the Chicago Athletic 
Association, as the contribution of its 
members, a certificate for $&,300 par 
value of that Association's First Mort- 
gage Refunding Bonds, bearing interest 
at five per cent. 

February 7th, 1911, the Committee 
adopted a plan for the distribution of 
the amount then actually paid in, 
$186,960.00, and directed that (with the 
exception of less than $10,000 to be paid 
forthwith to injured firemen and their 
dependents) the entire fund should be 
invested and the annual income thereof 
paid, in the case of widows or other 
adult beneficiaries, to them for life, the 
principal at the death of such benefi- 
ciaries to go tp his or her surviving chil- 
dren or heirs; and in the case of minor 
children, until the girls should respec- 
tively arrive at the age of 21 years and 
the boys at the agre of 25 years, where- 
upon each such minor shouid receive the 
principal allotted to him or her. 

The Committee has invested the 
funds so received by it in the following 
bonds : 

Commonwealth-Edison First 

Mtg. 5's par value $ 25,000 

Chicago Telephone Co. First 

Mtg. 5's par value 25,000 

Chicago City Ry. Co. First Mtg. 

5's par value 25,000 

Chicago Railways Co. First 

Mtg. 5's par value 25,000 

Chesapeake & Ohio Ry. Co. 

First Mtg. 4y2's par value.. 10,000 
Union Pacific Ry.~ Co. First 

Mtg. 4's par value 10,000 

Baltimore & Ohio Ry. Co. First 

Mtg. 4's par value 10 000 

C. B. & 0. R. R. Co. (111. Div.), 

First 4's par value 10,000 

Chicago & Northwestern Ry. 

Co. Gen. Mtg. 4'8 par value. . 10,000 
Western Electric Co. First 

Mtg. 5'& par - value 15,000 

First mortgages on improved 

Chicago real estate appraised 



at double the value of the 
loans, with interest at 5 per 
cent , 24,.500 



$189,.500 

The Committee states that said bonds 
were purchased at the best price ob- 
tainable in the open market and cost 
$190,662.50; that the balance of the 
cash subscriptions received is deposited 
by John J. Mitchell. Treasurer of the 
Committee, in the Illinois Trust and 
Savings Bank, subject to his order as 
Treasurer; that said bonds and mort- 
gages are deposited for safe keeping 
with that bank; that said bonds of the 
Chicago Athletic Association are in the 
custody of Mr. Mitchell, and that all 
said bonds are worth in the market 
more than the total price paid therefor. 

The members of the Committee have 
given their time and services to the 
collection of the fund and the only ex- 
penses incurred in connection therewith 
was $514.11 paid for stenographers' 
salaries, printing, postage, etc. 

All the beneficiaries except Mrs. Mar- 
garet Horan and Mrs. Belle E. Bur- 
roughs and their children, have strenu- 
ously objected to this method of distri- 
bution of the fund, and on April 15th, 
1911, Mary Moriarity and others filed 
their bill of complaint in the Superior 
Court of this County, case number 
285,890, to have said fund delivered to 
and distributed among complainants 
equally, giving to each who is a widow 
of one of the deceased firemen the same 
and an equal share as that given to 
every other widow, and to each of the 
complainants who is a minor child of 
one of the deceased firemen the same 
and an equal share as that given to 
every other child. 

I have carefully examined the bill of 
complaint and the answer of defendants 
and the foregoing facts are taken from 
the pleadings and exhibits. 

The case has been argued before 
Judge William Fenimore Cooper by able 
counsel for each side acting without the 
expectation of any compensation what- 
soever. 

I am informed the court has taken 
jurisdiction over the fund and that fur- 
ther action has been deferred for the 
purpose of making certain interested 
minors parties to the suit. 

In my opinion the Committee headed 



94 



REPOETS OF COMMITTEES. 



May 8, 1911. 



by Mr. Higinbotham has ample author- 
ity to control the fund in question, 
subject, however, to the action of the 
Superior Court in the pending proceed- 
ing, or of any other court of competent 
jurisdiction in a similar proceeding. 

Some objection has been made to the 
presence of Mr. Walter H. Wilson on 
the Committee after the date of his 
resignation as City Comptroller. The 
record of the Committee shows the ap- 
pointment of Mr. Wilson and .not of 
the City Comptroller. His services ap- 
pear to have been rendered as a pri- 
vate individual and not as an official. 

In my opinion the City of Chicago (as 
a municipality) has no interest in the 
fund or its distribution. It is now the 
duty of the courts to control the proper 
administration of the fund and all con- 
tributors should be entirely satisfied 
with the course to be pursued by the 
gentlemen of the Committee under the 
decree of the court. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) William H. Sexton, 

Corporation Counsel.

The Clerk presented requests sub-

order, 

1 Unanimous consent being refused for 
the consideration of said order. Aid. 
Snow moved to suspend the rules tem- 
porarily for the purpose of such con- 
sideration. 

The motion to suspend the rules pre- 
I vailed. 

The question being put on the motion 
to adopt the order, the motion prevailed 
and the said order was passed by yeas 
and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin, Kenna, Shufelt, Hard- 
I ing, Pringle, Tearney, Richert, Martin, 
j Carr, Long, Snow, Nance, Derpa, Em-

The following is the said order as 
passed: 

Whereas, Under the street railway 
ordinances passed February 11, 1907, the 
City of Chicago is now receiving an 
increasing annual revenue, already 
amounting to a sum in excess of $1,500,- 
000 a year, and 

Wheeeas, This income is the result of 
an indirect tax paid to the city by those 
citizens who have occasion to use street 
railway transportation, and 

Whereas, Such form of indirect taxa- 
tion is abhorrent as a means of raising 
general municipal revenue because the 
burden of such taxation is not cast upon 
the citizen in proportion to his means, 
but rather in proportion to his necessi- 
ties, and 

Whereas, Such contributions should 
properly be used for the purpose of ex- 
tending and improving the transporta- 
tion facilities furnished the citizens who 
make the contribution, and 

Whereas, The next important step in 
working out the problem of an efficient 
local transportation system lies in the 
construction of an adequate system of 
subways designed and so located as to 
furnish through routes of travel to the 
different sections of the city and to be 
operated as a part of or in connection 
with the surface railway systems with a 
single fare and universal transfers, and 

Whereas, Such a system of subways 
should be owned by the City of Chi- 
cago to the end that they may be con- 
trolled and operated solely in the inter- 
est of perfect transportation for its citi- 
zens, and 

Whereas, The traction fund now re- 
ceived as a permanent income by the 
city, if capitalized at the prevailing rate 
of interest, would provide a fund suffi- 
cient to construct the subways now 
needed; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Corporation Counsel 
be and he hereby is directed to report to 
this Council what legislation is necessary 
to enable the City of Chicago 

1st. To construct by day labor or by 
contract and to own a system of sub- 
ways for the transportation of passen- 
gers and merchandise and to provide 
for such underground municipal utili- 
ties as may be desired and to operate 
or to lease the same. 

2d. To issue bonds for the construc- 
tion and equipment of such subways, 
said bonds to be a lien upon such prop- 



• 



118 NEW BUSINESS BY WARDS. May 8, 1911. 



erty only and not to be included in the 
bonded debt of the city. 

3d. To exclusively pledge and pay the 
traction fund as interest upon such 
bond issue, and to use any portion of 
such fund to aid in the creation of a 
sinking fund for the retirement of such 
bonds. 

4th. To further use any net revenues 
received either from the operation or the 
leasing of such a system of subways, 
when constructed, for the purpose of 
paying off such bonds. 

5th. To pay out of such bond issue 
the cost of such reconstruction of un- 
derground municipal utilities as are dis- 
turbed by the building of subways. 

Aid. Snow presented an ordinance 
amending Section 364 and Section 400 
of an ordinance concerning buildings,

Eeferred to the Committee on Build- 
ing Department.

A communication as follows: 

Office of the Mayor, | • 
Chicago, May 15, 1911. } 

To the Honorable, the City Council, of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — -I beg leave to call to your 
attention the present status of the hill 
introduced in the State Senate by the 
Hon, Ediward Glackin, conferring power 
upon the City of Chicago to invest its 
funds in so-called "city's anticipation 
warrants," which it issues from time to 
time under authority of Section 2 of an 
act entitled "An Act to provide for the 
manner of issuing warrants upon the 
treasury of any couiuty, to^vnship, city, 
■school district or dther municipal cor- 
poration, and jurors' certificates" (ap- 
proved May 13, 1879, as amended July 
1, 1901), Kurd's Revised Statutes, 1909. 
Chapter 14i6a, page 2276. 

I am advised that this bill has passed 
the Senate^ but that there is reason to 
fear adverse action by the House unless 
prompt steps are taken to make proper 
and vigorous representations to that 
body. 

I deem it my duty to call to your 
attention the importance of the adop- 
tion of this bill to the City of Chicago 
and the unfortunate situ'ation in which 
the city is now placed Avhen confronted 
by the necessity of borrowing money and 
in the investment of the various funds 
it has on deposit with the banks. 

Under Section 2 of the present statute, 
reJlating to the manner of issuing war- 
rants aibove referred to, whenever there 
is not sufficient money in the city treas- 
ui-y to meet and defray the ordinary ex- 
penses of the city, the city is authorized 
to provide funds by issuing and dispos- 
ing of warrants drawn against and in 
anticipation of any taxes which have; 
been already levied by the city authori- 
ties for the payment of such expenses, 
to the extent "of 75 per cent of the total 
amount of such tax. 

Kor years past the financial condition 
of the city has been such that it has been 
necessary' to issue these, so-called, antici- 
pation warrants under the authority 
given by the statute. 

Tlu^ warrants so issued under this 
st'atute constitute the very best class 
of securities, because said section of the 
act in question provides that these war- 
rants shall shoAV upon their face that 



April 15, 1911. 



COM.MUNICATIONS, ETC. 



they are payaible from the taxes levied 
when they are collected, and that these 
taxes against which the warrants are 
drawn shall be set apart and held for 
their payment. 

It appears from the Comptroller's 
daily bank statement of this date that 
the city now has on deposit with vari- 
ous banks in this city funds amounting 
to the gross sum of $19,994,874.33, made 
up as follows : 



Corporate Fund $ 2,377,023.70 

Water Fund 1,574,98.3.6.9 

Special Assessment Fund.. 2. 755, 606.45 

Sinking Fund 3, 948,702. ,5« 

Special Traction Fund 6,118,755.55 

School Building Fund 2,140,80d.06 

Miscellaneous Fund 1,079,001.30 



Total $19,994,874.33 



The city receives interest on such of 
these funds as tne hanks regard as 
stable funds at the rate of 21/2 per cent 
rper annum, and on such of these funds 
as are regarded as active funds, at the 
rate of 2 per cent per annum, or an 
average of 214 per cent. 

As I nave pointed out, it has been nec- 
essary for the city constantly to borrow 
money in anticipation of its taxes. This 
money is borrowed (hy the sale of these 
anticipation tax warrants to the very 
hanks which have the diffei»ent funds of 
the city ahove specified on deposit. On 
the funds so borrowed from the banks 
the city is now paying 4 per cent, and 
in years past has paid as high as 5 per 
cent. The city has now outstanding for 
funds borrowed in the manner indicated, 
warrants representing the aggregate sum 
of $10,007,420.00. 

Most of these warrants are long time 
warrants, which run for years. There 
is outstanding in ordinary corporate war- 
rants of this class $8,454,420.00, and in 
warrants represented by funds of tbe 
tuberculosis sanitarium, $78,000.00. 

By reason of the fact that the Board 
of Education is financially in better con- 
dition, it is not necessary usually to 
permit the warrants issued against the 
school funds to remain outstanding for 
n^ore than some six weeks. These short 
time warrants now outstanding aggre- 
gate the sum of $l,475,0€O.00. They "are 
issued ao-ainst the taxes of 1910, which 
are collected in 11>11, while the loner time 
warrants are issued against the taxes of 
1011, Avhich are not collected until the 
year 1912. Of the total $8,000,000.00 or 



$9,000,000.00 in long time warrants is- 
ued against the 1910 taxes by the city, 
there remains outstanding from ,$4 000 - 

000.00 to $5,000,000.00. 

If the City of Chicago, instead of be- 
ing compelled, as it now is under the 
law, to borrow money by the sale of 
anticipation warrants to the banks, pay- 
ing 4 per cent interest therefor, was au- 
thorized by law to invest the variou.s 
funds which it lias on deposit with these 
same banks in its own anticipation war- 
rants. Which, as I have pointed out, are 
gilt edge securities, the city would be 
able to save annually the difference be- 
tween the 4 per cent interest it has to- 
pay the banks and the 214 per cent in- 
terest which it receives from the banks 
on its own funds. This saving of 13^ 
per cent would amount in round num- 
bers during the next year to $150,000.00. 

As the city grows, its various funds on 
deposit with the banks will continue to 
grow and its taxes increase annually in 
amount. 

The_ annual loss to the city due. to the 
unbusinesslike terms on whicb it is com- 
pelled to borrow its money because of 
the existing law will continue to increase 
find should be checked at once. I, there- 
fore, feel that the Glackin bill, in its 
present or amended form, should', in the 
interest of the City of Chicago, be passed 
^'t this session of the General Assemble, 
and I suggest that your Honorable Body 
apnoint its Finance Committee as a com- 
mittee to go to Springfield immediately 
to urge upon the lower house of the 
General Assembly the ipassage of the bill 
in question. With that end in view, I 
transmit herewith a resolution for your 
consideration. 

Eespectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison.

to issue and dispose of warrants drawn 
against and in anticiipation of taxes 
levied by the authorities in order to meet 
the ordinary expenses of the city; 

Whekeas, also. The financial condi- 
tion of the city is such that it is neces- 
sary, in order to meet the ordinary and 
necessary expenses of the city, annually 
to Dorrow from the banks by issuing and 
disposing of such warrants an aggregate 
sum of Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,- 
000.00) and upwards, upon which sum 
so borrowed the city is compelled to 
pay interest at the rate of at least four 
per cent (4%) per annum; 

Whereas, also, The city now has on 
deposit in the various banks in the City 
of Chicago in its corporate and various 
special funds an aggregate sum of, ap- 
proximately, Twenty Million Dollars 
($20,000,060.00), upon which it receives 
interest from said banks at the average 
rate of two and one-quarter per cent 
('21/4%) per annumi; 

Whereas, also, Under the existing 
law the City of Chicago is without au- 
thority to invest any part of its said 
corporate or special funds in said antici- 
piation warrants, although by Section 2 
of said statute relating to warrants the 
taxes agairiisJt which they are issued must 
be set aside for their payment, thereby 
rendering said warrants safe invest- 
ments ; 

Whereas, also, If the City of Chi- 
cago was authorized by law to invest 
its funds now on deposit in the various 
banks in said anticipation warrants, it 
could effect thereby a saving of, ap- 
proximiately, One Hundred and Fifty 
Tliousand Dollars ($150,000.00) per an- 
num ; and, 

Whereas, also, There was a bill in- 
troduced by the Hon. Edward G-lackin in 



the General Assembly, known as Senate 
Bill No. 15, which has already passed the 
Senate and is now pending in the House, 
under the provisions of which, if adopted, 
this saving could be effected ; and. 

Whereas, also, Although the passage 
of said bill in its present or amended 
form is greatly to the interest of the 
City of Chicago, some opposition has de- 
veloped to said bill in the lower house 
of the General Assemlbly; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Finance Committee 
of the City Council be constituted a com- 
mittee to go immediately to Springfield 
to urge the passage of said bill now 
pending in the lower house of the Gen- 
eral Assembly in its present or some 
amended form, which will make possible 
said saving of said sum annually, or to 
designate from its members a sub-com- 
mittee for such purpose if it deems 
best.

ALSO, 

The following communication, which

Avas, on motion of Aid. Wilson, referred 
to the Committee on Judiciary: 



Depaetment of Public Works, 
Chicago, May 15, 1911. 



The Honorable, the Mayor, and the City 
Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In the appropriation bill 
for 1911, page 3908, there appears an 
item as follows: 

"Mxed 'Concrete Bridges, North 
Spaiilding avenue, $15,000.00." 

People in the adjacent territory have 
visited the Commissioner of Public 
Works, discussing the location of this 
concrete bridge, and communications by 
Biscoe Hindman and D. H. Louder/bach 
have been addressed to the City Engineer, 
requesting that the location of this 
bridge be changed. 

The facts as regards" this matter are 
as follows: 

_ AJbout three years ago a number of 
citizens residing in the part of the city 
kno^^-n as Bowmanville called on the 
Comm.dssioner of Public Works and made 
a request that a foot bridge be built over 
the river at Spaulding avenue to accom- 
modate the residents in the vicinity who 
used the Pvavenswood extension of the 
Northwestern Elevated Railroad for 
transportation. 

Inasmuch as Spauldina avenue was 
onen as far north as Catalpa avenue at 
that time and as the people in that sec- 
tion of the city would be benefited to a 
great extent, the foot bridge was built. 
The adjoining streets, except the section 
lines, were not open at that time north 
of the river. 

The reason that Spaulding avenue was 
selected as the location for this bridge 
was, in the first place, the location of 
the above mentioned foot bridge at this 
place, and, secondly, that the street was 
open north of the river. 

After the bond issue was ratified by 
the voters at the election held on April 
1911, various interests in that dia^ 
trict, as stated, made requests to have 
the location of the bridge changed to 
either Kimball avenue or Central Park 
avenue. 

In order to ascertain whether a bridge 
at one of these places could be built 
for the same amount of money as at 



'Spaulding avenue, surveys have been 
made, and a plat showing the adjoininrr 
property is hereto attached. 

Central Park avenue is the half section 
line, and as this street crossing is mid- 
way between the bridges at Ke'dzie ave- 
nue ,and 40th avenue, this street seems 
to_ be a desirahle location for a new 
bridge. 

Kimball avenue is not open north of 
the river, which, I think, should pre- 
clude tne placing of the bridge at this 
point. 

The appropriation is, as stated, made 
for a bridge at Spaulding avenue, and 
the money set aside for this construction 
can probably not he used for the build- 
ing of a bridge at some other location 
without some action of vour Honorable 
Body, to whom I respectfully refer these 
facts for such action as you may deem 
proper. 

Yours truly, 
(■Signed). L. E. McGann, 

Commissioner of Public Works

These chutes are circular in form and

at a point with the building just outside 
of the building line in the sidewalk

these chutes have not been removed, have

I have before me the application of the 
Illinois Tunnel Company for two addi- 
tional permits for temporary chutes and 
fail to find any authority to justify my 
granting them, although it would greatly 
facilitate the work of wrecking buildings

the new buildings projposed. 

If it is desirable that these permits for 
temporary construction should be issued, 
please grant authority necessary for that 
purpose.

Dear Sir — Forwarded herewith please 
find summary of proposals, together with 
the proposals, to furnish deliver and in- 
stall fire alarm counter frame in the 
fire alarm office on the sixth floor of 
the new City Hall. 

The estimated cost of this work was 
$1,200.00. I respectfully request your

approval of the letting of the contract to 
Kohler Brothers, the second lowest bid- 
der-, for the following reasons: Newgard, 
L'jng and Kohler Brothers are electrical 
C'>!in-actors. The Scaar & Sullivan Co. 
are architectural iron workers. 

If the latter com'pany, tiie lowest hid- 
der. were given the contract, it is doubt- 
ful if they could complete the installa- 
ti-on of the equipment, and if they did 
the city would be involved in a labor 
union controversy which would cost 
more in the end than the amount in- 
vo'lved. Furthermore, it would delay 
the installation of the fire alarm office 
in the City -Hall and consequently make 
trouble on account of the lease of the 
fi Gliding now occupied. 

I believe it to be to the best interests 
of the city to let this contract to Kohler 
Brothers even though the Scaar & Sulli- 
vr.'i Co. should sue the city and get judg- 
m nt for the $550.00. I have had the 
waV'ject up with Mr. Sexton, Corporation 
Counsel, who agrees with me as to the 
disposition of the contract. 

Yours very truly,

whom was referred (May 1, 1911, page 
64) a resolution directing the appoint- 
ment of a commission to investigate the 
feasibility and practicability of the ex- 
tension of street and alley cleaning oper- 
ations and the removal and disposition 
of garbage, having had the same under 
advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend the adoption of the resolu- 
tion: 

Whereas, The cleaning of streets and 
alleys and the removal and disposition of 
garbage, ashes and refuse is a great 
economic problem affecting the health, 
comfort and interest of all citizens; and 

Whereas, The increase in population 
and expansion in territory has imposed 
great responsibility upon that depart- 
ment of Municipal Government having to 
do with this problem such as to sug- 
gest a comprehensive investigation of the 
subject; and 

Whereas, Heretofore no provision has 
been made for the removal of snow in 
the principal outlying streets so as to 
relieve an intolerable condition render- 
ing streets impassable for ordinary traf- 
fic; therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the Citv Council of the 
City of Chicago, that the Mayor be and 
he is hereby authorized and directed to 
appoint a commission composed of five 
members of the City Council and the 
Commissioner of Public Works and the 
Superintendent of the Bureau of Streets 
to investigate the feasibility and the 
practicability of the extension of street 
and alley cleaning operations and the 
removal and disposition of garbage, 
ashes and refuse, and to report the re- 
sult of such investigation, together with 
SUCH recommendations for betterments as 
in their judgment shall appear to be 
feasible and practicaJble, for the informa- 
tion of the City Council.

amending said original ordinance by re- 
ducing the comipensation provided in

last regular meeting of your Honorable 
Body, waiving the annual inspection 
fee of $2.00 of the hall in connection

a rule of a continuing nature. If it is 
the wish of your Honorable Body to 
waive a single annual inspection fee, I 
would suggest that the vote by which 
the said order was passed be reconsidered

Dear Sir— Under date of May 15th

Board of Commissioners of Cook 1 
County, Illinois, j- 
May 22nd, 1911. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of iChicago : 

Gentlemen — The attention of the 
Board of Commissioners of Cook County 
has been called to the practice of the 
police of the City of Chicago of bringing 
to the County Hospital for treatment 
numerous persons who are suffering from 
delirium tremens, and other ailments re- 
sulting from the excessive use of intoxi- 
cants. 

Practically, every such case comes from 
some portion of the City, the County out- 
side of the City furnishing isolated cases 
only. The City of Chicago derives a large 
revenue from the issuance of saloon li- 
censes, and, it would seem that patients 
of the nature referred to are not proper 
subjects for the County Hospital. Such 
cases, in many instances, yield to slight 
and temporary treatment, and the City 
should experience no difficulty to take 
care of them. 

The County Hospital is now over- 
crowded, and the facilities at that insti- 
tution are insufficient to furnish suitable 
quarters for diseased and injured persons 
who are dependent on public charity. 

The matter has been referred to the 
Committee on City Relations of the 
County Board. Before taking action it 
is the desire of the committee to confer 
with the proper representatives of your 
City, with a view of adjusting this ques- 
tion along amicable lines. 

I would, therefore, suggest that this 
communication be referred to one of your 
committees, so that an early conference 
may be had on the subject. 

I remain, yours very truly, 
(Signed) Daniel J. Harris, 

Chairman, Committee on City Re- 
lations of the County Board.

mittee on Water Department: 

Department of Public Works, } 
Chicago, May 22, 1911. 
'To the Honorable, fhe Mayor and Ihe City 

Council: 

Gentlemen — For many years the 
method of supplying water to the South 



Park Commissioners has been unsatisfac- 
tory, owing to the increased consumption 
9t a. time when ' he capacity of our pump- 
ing stations was being taxed to its limit. 

An order recently issued by tlie Com- 
missioner of Public Works restricting 
the use of Avater in the several parks of 
the city was objected to by i!ie South 
Park Commissioners as preven-.ing the 
proper maintenance of the . South Park 
system. To secure immediate relief the 
Commissioner of Public Works suggested 
that they install a temporary pumping 
system pending negotiations for new con- 
tractual relations between the City of 
Chicago and the South Park Commis- 
sioners. 

This suggestion was accepted by them, 
and I transmit herewith a communica- 
tion from the Honorable John Barton 
Payne, President of the South Park Com- 
missioners, and an order granting the 
permission to the South Park Commis- 
sioners to install the necessary pumps, 
with a recommendation that the same 
should pass. 

Yours very respectfully,

Your Committee on Finance, to whom
